Inspections Hours

The permit holder is responsible for calling for all inspections. Hours of inspections are:

Please be prepared to give the address, type of inspection and contractor name. The inspector has 2 business days to make an inspection before construction can continue.

You can call the Building Inspection Department to schedule inspections, but we would prefer you schedule inspections via our online portal.  By entering a permit number or address, you can view the status of a permit as well as schedule and track inspections. In order to schedule inspections, you will need a "Contractor Access Code". For contractors, this is your Contractor Registration Number (i.e. Building, Dwelling, Electrical or HVAC Contractor Registration Number). For owners wishing to schedule inspections, please contact the Building Inspection Department to obtain a Contractor Access Code.

If you are having difficulty navigating the Portal, or if your Access Code isn't working, please contact Mike Jacek at (608) 845-0903.
